The Flowers International 5k and 10k open water swimming competition is part of the annual Flowers Sea Swim on Grand Cayman Island in the Cayman Islands.

As part of the World's Top 100 Open Water Swims, its sheer beauty, local hospitality, world-class competitiveness, awards, innovative initiatives for spectators, fitness orientation, and the open water swimming world’s largest distribution of random prizes, it is one of the greatest open water swims in the world.

The event is a charity swim where the 2012 and 2013 Flowers Sea Swim's beneficiary is Feed Our Future.



The beauty of the one-mile course is nearly beyond comprehension. The venue on Seven Mile Beach is simply stunning, a living aquarium. The warm tropical crystal-clear waters gently envelopes the swimmers in the protected, nearly always flat beach.

Seven Mile Beach is on Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands, south of Cuba and east of Cancún, Mexico. The idyllic Caribbean Sea resort welcomes the swimmers with soft sea breezes and gorgeous white sands offset by the azul sea.
